Biography

Evans joined Celtic during 1944 from junior side St.Anthony's. He started out his Celtic career as a forward, but it wasn't until manager Jimmy McGrory moved him back to right-half that Evans became a Celtic great.

Evans was the first Celtic captain to lift the League Cup in 1956 and he famously helped defend it a year later against Rangers in what will forever be known as Hampden in the sun. He made 535 appearances for Celtic and scored 10 goals in 16 years with the club.

Evans played 48 times for Scotland including all three games at the 1958 World Cup, captaining the side in the first of those against France. He was captain in a total of twelve matches during his career.
